This is a "Free-mix" of Josh Garrels song Freedom that I made. I'm that guy that's a terrible, awful, perfectionist with insecurity issues haha....so I'm just putting this out or I never will. This is a remix of a song that's a live version , so I mean, it's not peak quality since I am still working on mixing/mastering etc... but ENJOY! Hopefully it edifies the church. God bless Josh Garrels and God bless his sheep, both found and soon to be!

Salutations. I come to you as a living stone (@YawnLivingston) in the body of Christ, peep game though... Acts 2:17 says “And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;..." PLEASE NOTE: it says "ALL FLESH" and NOT "the people who believe they have a monopoly on me" it then continues... Acts 2:21 "And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." similarly, John 8:36 "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." It's difficult to accept the gospel, right? As a matter of fact, it's impossible without divine intervention. I draw this conclusion from scriptures SUCH AS, yet not limited to: 1Cor 2:9 But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him” (10) these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God." and Matthew 16:16 "Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (17)And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And once you DO accept it, it's EVEN HARDER to share it, because it hurts to have your feelings walked on and your intelligence/sanity questioned and mocked. I've followed certain channels that helped open my eyes, and I've unfollowed channels that crusted them back over. This "truth" thing is tough. But I truly believe that wisdom ONLY comes from the Father. Whether or not you believe in him or in his gift of salvation doesn't really matter much. For going on 3 yrs, I've felt compelled to witness, yet hindered. The time wasn't "right" or I was too afraid to start sounding crazy to the world...you know how that goes... To make a long, rambling story just a tiny bit shorter, I must be an "old man" in Jesus' eyes now, cuz I've been havin dreams, and ever since my renaissance, I just...SEE things. I peep the "matrix" for what it is, a false reflection of a broken reality replete with built in, self-replicating controls. It kinda seems like we all just hold up mirrors to reflect our collective disillusionment so we can continue on autopilot and not have those jarring, paradigm shifting, "HOLY $#!+" moments that cause us to re-examine what we think we know. It just so happens that I am an underachieving, self-defeating nobody. But even the most accomplished of men MUST be humbled before they are able to recognize that, in fact, we are ALL just lost children in a rainforest of deception. Their are a few messages to be examined here, but I felt as though one in particular is specifically for the brother Three Dawns Suffice and anyone else suffering from spiritual oppression in the form of condemnation, but it is also meant to edify the whole church. In the magnificent, unsearchable riches of Christ, I have found my true name. And up until now, I've been too self-conscious or afraid to hop online and share the love and awe that I've been found by. All that's gotta change now. SO...for either your spiritual edification or your cringey viewing pleasure, I now put myself on blast for all to see... - @YawnLivingston

Let's just consider this an amendment to my previous testimony video. https://youtu.be/q1tK-4AXvVM I'm just kinda thinking out loud, adding some context to why I made the choice to worship Jesus as my lord and king. If I remember correctly, I kind of touch on my early life experiences and just fill in a little bit of my personality to match the previous video I posted. I'll say it again, I'm just a nobody. I don't have a million dollars. I don't have a flashy career. I don't even have a sixpack. I just have a personal, intimate relationship with the Spirit of the Living God. You can either pick me apart and scoff at my ridiculous worldview, or you can try to understand what it is that motivates me to love scriptures so much. The choice, as always, is no one's but your own!
HYPER SENSATIONAL TITLE!!! aka How Jesus Melted My Disbelief to Save Me

Hey, it's a me...Mario!! Nah but seriously, this is a VERY abridged version of what it took for me to believe that Jesus was who he claimed to be. For anyone who doesn't know: Once upon a time, a man was born to a poor, lowerclass family in Bethlehem. Now, this man happened to be kind of a big deal, so much so, that we actually MEASURE TIME by when he died. But then, he got bored with being dead, so he literally up ducked the rock, cuz he's got it like that. I'm so serious it's wild. And I DO get it, ya know, if you're too smart or too this or too that to believe in all this historical, theological, metaphysical mumbo jumbo...that's cool. I just kinda wanted to take this chance to tell whomever might be interested about how the one TRUE living God became a man and came to earth as a lamb to fix what we broke a long, long time ago. Now, the thing is, he's actually coming back (very, VERY, very soon), but this time it won't be as a lamb, but as a lion, and he's gona be piiiiiiissed. And I mean, he IS a loving king, but he's also a JUST king. So you might want to get rid of that hippie dippie, Birkenstock wearing PhishHead image you have of him. In all honesty, he's actually coming back to claim his rightful inheritance, which just so happens to be EVERYTHING EVER CREATED. And he's not gona crush his enemies with misspelled platitudes and protest signs. Let's see...what else... OH YEAH! So, when he comes back, he's not about to be in some Volkswagen bus. He's gona swoop in on a warhorse to reclaim his creation, and in all honesty, I can't WAIT to see what that's like, because I'm so sick and damned tired of the craziness and sin that makes this world so ugly and hurtful. And the best part is, if you wana belong to the new creation, that is, the way the earth was always meant to be, you can do that. You just gota demote yourself. You know, just take it down a peg, and act like a grateful child instead of whatever it is that we got goin on right now. So just consider this my attempt to rob you of the chance to say, "but...but...no one ever told me that you were the real king and that a choice to ignore you was a choice to defy you." See what I'm sayin? Because EVERY knee will bow. And EVERY tongue will confess the son that God has forever blessed. So its DEFINITELY gona be better if you just do it willingly. So anyway, I hope you are able to listen with your heart THROUGH your ears. And if that stirring inside your chest happens, just know, that's how it works. Start pulling that thread. Real believers aren't afraid to question their faith, that's how it gets stronger.

I'm done working on this for the night, but I'm so stoked on how it's sounding so far. I'll consider it 77% ready. I just wanted to put it up to show someone, I'll replace it with the whole one soon as it's finished.
